How can I tell FrameMaker to remember the changes in preferences permanently. For instance, I would like FM not to take automatic backup on save or create Lock File on Network. Now, each time I open FM, I have to set these options under preferences but as soon as FM is closed or crashes the options are back to original.

Where are your preferences stored?
Mine are here:
Can you check which file is changed, when you change something in your preferences?
There is also another maker.ini file here:
Possibly yours are in a directory where you do not have write permissions without administrator privileges.
Thank you. Once, I ran Framemaker as administrator and did the changes, it is saved permanently. So, yes I did not have write permission!
Additionally to Winfrieds questions:
- what's your operating system
- are you working on a virtual machine?
- whats the modification date of your user maker.ini?
